A recent report by Time Warner Cable draws attention back to oil pulling, an ancient Ayurvedic remedy involving swishing teaspoonfuls of pure oil. The report discusses that by pulling out harmful bacteria, toxins and other organisms out of the oral cavity, oil pulling improves both oral and overall health. Some suggest that oil pulling helps with skin conditions such as acne as well as diabetes and asthma. The most effective oil pulling is done by placing around a tablespoon of cold pressed organic sesame or coconut oil into the mouth and swishing the oil around for 20 minutes and then spitting it out into the garbage.
